Today we’d like to introduce you to Jenny Finkler.
Hi Jenny, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I have always been interested in health and fitness. I grew up figure skating competitively and was always very active. I graduated with a major in Hospitality Management and a minor in health sciences. I knew I always wanted to have my own business. After my husband and I moved out to California, I began coaching figure skating and met a great friend who introduced me to Dexafit. I found this testing incredibly helpful. Having been an athlete nearly my entire life, I had always wondered about my body metrics. I had questions like, “How can I get an accurate body composition test? How do I know if I am making progress just by looking at the scale? How do I know how many calories I should be eating for my training? How strong is my cardio health? These were questions that were answered and I finally had a guide as to how to do this for my progress. After learning about this testing and running the San Francisco location for a few years, my family and I decided to open our location here in Orlando. I found a true passion for helping people reach their health and wellness goals.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
As with starting a business, it is not always smooth sailing. With the support of my family, it has been incredibly rewarding! The most recent challenge has been with covid and shutting down for a few months. Although we were closed, we were still able to check in with clients and keep everyone engaged through social media as much as possible. Since re-opening, we are confident that we are keeping our staff and clients safe and healthy!
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Our business specializes in Health and Fitness Testing. We offer a variety of services that allow our clients to check and help keep track of their body’s metrics. These tests show trending data as well, we can tell our clients if the nutrition or fitness plan they have been following has been successful. We offer the following tests: DXA Test: We use a DXA scanner, the gold standard for body measurement. Our machine uses x-ray technology to accurately measure body fat percentage, bone density, visceral belly fat, and lean muscle imbalances. Our clients rely on this information and follow-ups to make the necessary changes they want to reach their desired body composition. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Test this test helps us give clients a measurement of their metabolism, how many calories they need at rest, with activity, and if they are a sugar or fat burner. We can tell our clients if they are eating too much or too little based on what their body uses in 24 hours and helps them determine a deficit for weight loss.
VO2 Max Test this test measures how efficient your body uses oxygen during high-intensity exercise. We can determine the supply of oxygen and how efficiently your muscles are utilizing it so you can train more efficiently. As a person improves their cardio health, that VO2 score will improve. From this test, we can also see your target heart rate zones so you can efficiently track your zones during your workouts. Fit3d this test is a 3d body scanner that can show a clients’ head-to-toe circumference measurements with a spinning avatar of their body. We are very proud of our state-of-the-art equipment and how we give a non-biased analysis. We are committed to helping our clients achieve their goals and have a network of like-minded businesses to help them with their nutrition and fitness. Specifically, our DXA machine uses actual measurements to measure body densities, while other ways of testing use calculations to determine body fat percentages.
We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
Something surprising about me is that I competed at the state and regional level in singles skating and in 2017 competed at the National level in synchronized skating. I am currently coaching in my spare time at the Ice Factory in Kissimmee.
